Nothing special but a nice wander round and a well needed bit of exercise after all that bloody food

Visited with Slim,
To the Jim.

 

Early morning,
The sun was just dawning,
A pattering of paws we did hear,
As the falcon we drew near.

 

A dog sniffling by my feet,
I begin to taste defeat,
A torch passing overhead,
Still we stay dead.

 

Footsteps in front of us fall,
A whistle,
No longer does the dog us eyeball,
Face down in thistle.

 

Still we lay,
light moves further away,
fuck we utter in unison,
this space ship is a toxin.

 

To the exit we do go,
Vehicle headlights behind us do glow,
In the forest we do collapse,
Jim his go pro he does not find,
Our fate is signed.

 

In again we go,
Fingertip searching,
Jim finds his go pro,
Forward I go jogging.

 

Through the trees,
I begin to wheeze,
There I see it before my eyes,
Space ship from the darkness rise.

 

Dogs begin to bark,
Bringing an end to this lark,
Engine begins to roar,
Time to go I know the score.

Why a silly old music box you may ask?

 

I had a child free night last night. Going to bed I tripped up on this, which when she is around I end up cursing to myself whilst I nurse a sore foot.

 

Last night it just reminded how much I missed her, so this time I just picked up and snapped a picture.

      According to a report in August 2018 there were 18 pubs closing in the UK every week with 476 closures in the first 6 months of that year. It's a sobering (sorry) thought for someone like me who appreciates an ale or six in a nice hostelry. 
       
      There are records showing The Bridge Inn here going back to around 1875 although how far back it dates is unclear. It closed permanently in 2013 and planning permission was given for change of use. I had the feeling that work was starting on redeveloping it when I was there. 
       
      The Welsh name is Tafarn Y Bont - I wouldn't say there's anything that makes it distinctly Welsh - but its a good example of a traditional British pub which still has a few old features. It was nice that it seemed pretty untouched in the years since it closed.

      A explore of an old slate mine. The mining started a few hundred years ago but is abandoned for several decades. This mine is not the safest and some parts are already collapsed. All the train rails are gone but you can see where they were. Only some bats live in these parts now. The white dots on the walls are all dead spiders with a layer of calcium. Not sure why there were so much dead spiders there.
      The person with whom I  exploring with had done the research of this mine. You had to walk some distance through the woods to get to the entrance. .
      There was yet another level but we couldn't make a safe connection point for a rope so we skipped that. It was a steep incline 10 meters down.

      The above ground part of an old slate mine. This one was quite deep but unfortunately totally flooded now. This one is in the centre of a small village so care needed to be taken not to bee seen.
      There is also the administrative building but that one seems to get renovated,hence the new coat of paint. Also the camera on the side was a good indication.
      The slate and the miners went down on the same structure. Not sure what the future will bring for this one. Most likely demolishing.

      New member here, but far from new to urbex. I have always had an interest in exploring and adventuring within abandoned locations.
       
      When I explore I take images and video and I upload to my YouTube channel. I notice that there appears to be a fairly sizable rift between Stills photographers and videographers (mainly YouTubers).
       
      As I said before I am a YouTuber but I don't beg for likes and subscriptions. I  research locations, explore it and document it. None of this "smash the like button" or "nearly died" fakery that a lot of video people do simply to generate exposure. I think genuine urban explorers whether they are stills people or video people actually have more in common than they think and Perhaps we should be more worried about outright fakery that occurs on both sides of the spectrum. Within the YouTube urbex community, there is a genuine distaste for people who are creating fake content. The term that is widely used is "urbex theatre". It's a work of fiction, dressed up to be an explore.
       
      The same occurs within the photography sector where people are manipulating images to the extent they do not even resemble the original location. There are also situations where people rearrange locations to set up their shots (photo or video) and this really just takes away from the whole abandoned theme.
       
      Genuine explorers are genuine explorers regardless of the medium you choose to record your explores on, or the platform you choose to display your work. Would love to hear your thoughts on this...
